The tasks of our laboratory

Product tests for global use

At our laboratory, we begin testing the materials and systems you plan to use from as early as the product development phase. They are designed to meet your needs and reliably tested for usability around the world. Working closely with the responsible contacts in the relevant departments, the laboratory serves as the central interface for project work. Hundreds of products and components are tested and monitored from the first prototype through to serial production.

Our laboratory, which has its head office in Germany, is accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO IEC 17025. The accreditation confirms the laboratory’s independence and expertise and backs up recognition by official bodies, licensing offices and other authorities. For you and your applications, this means safety, outstanding performance and high levels of quality in many areas of application.

We’ll show potential services for you here using some of our own product development operations as an example.

The laboratory and our products

A wide range of products requires a multitude of testing options

A wide range of products requires a multitude of testing options

From the very beginning of a project, the laboratory assists you throughout all of an innovation’s phases, paying equal attention to design and quality aspects as well as product management and sales strategies. We’ll show potential services for you here using some of our own product development operations as an example.

Certain tests are required for all Klippon® enclosures. For the use in ATEX areas special confirmations are stipulated, like temperature increase with built-in components, surface resistance or impact resistivity.

Signals emitted by our PRV marshalling terminal block in a confined space

Signals emitted by our PRV marshalling terminal block in a confined space

The PRV range was developed to enable the transmission of as many signals as possible in a confined space. Vibration-induced influences on the contacts were tested during the vibration test. The geometric precision measurement provided the key edge for the space-saving PRV range.

Putting our SAFESERIES safety relay to the test

Putting our SAFESERIES safety relay to the test

The SIL 3 relay safeguards the corrosion test in corrosive atmospheres. In the harmful gas test, the concentration was adapted to the G3 level and was therefore higher than the requirements of normal corrosion tests.

Load test performed on RockStar, our heavy-duty plug-in connector

Load test performed on RockStar, our heavy-duty plug-in connector

The vibration test, seal integrity testing and the thermal shock procedure are some of the extreme tests that RockStar, our heavy-duty plug-in connector, has to face. The laboratory uses computer tomography so it can evaluate the results.
